Structural Engineering

In the event of a disaster such as a flood, fire or earthquake, you would like to be sure that the building or structure that may be protecting you is safe. Structural Engineers design the framework of buildings, towers, bridges, tunnels and other structures to ensure they are strong, resilient and safe.

  • Structural Engineers incorporate innovative designs, complex modelling software and new technologies such as fibre composite materials as part of their work.  
  • USQ’s Centre for Future Materials is a leader in the use of composite materials to design bridges, railway sleepers and floating walkways.      
  • USQ’s Master of Engineering and Master of Engineering Science are fully accredited by Engineers Australia, and are recognised worldwide.
